LOS ANGELES – Out of the Ashes, a fundraiser for victims of the recent Southern California fires, is set for Friday, February 15, in downtown Los Angeles. Organized by The Malibu Foundation, Future Cannabis Project, Emerald Exchange, California Cannabis Manufacturers Association, UCLA Canna Club, and AWA OASIA, proceeds will go to The Malibu Foundation, which is working to assist in recovery for victims of the Woolsey Fire.

The all-day event—which will feature activities that include yoga classes, massage therapy, musical performances, panel discussions, and a four-course chef’s dinner—is supported by cannabis-related companies and organizations. A few of these are Los Angeles NORML, Boveda, Flow Kana, Papa & Barkley, 99 Malibu High Tide, CannaCraft, Sonoma Pacific Distribution, Futurola, and CHAKRAS, which is organizing the health and wellness activities. A complete list of sponsors can be found at

The idea for the fundraiser originated with Justin Calvino, founder of the Emerald Exchange, and Peter Cervieri, co-founder of Future Cannabis Project, who took the reins. Originally conceived as an evening event, plans quickly escalated when Cervieri found a spacious downtown venue available for the day.

“I figured, why not program an entire day of content,” he said. “Now, it’s jam-packed with interesting industry conversation plus everything in the kitchen sink. We have a wellness track with yoga, sound healing and massage therapy, and a conference track if you’re in the industry. At night, there will be a chef-prepared dinner, movie screenings with cannabis documentaries that will be on Netflix soon, and music and DJs. Conceptually, it’s the cannabis industry coming together for something that’s not just about it.”

An all-day pass costs $30. Tax-deductible, it allows the user to access afternoon panel discussions, register for yoga classes in the onsite yoga studio, and watch movies. Food trucks will be available onsite where food can be purchased. An all-day pass plus the four-course plated chef’s dinner costs $150. There also is a corporate option for $1000, which includes all the above, five additional dinner tickets, and acknowledgement as an event supporter. “You can even donate ticket(s) to someone who lost their home in the fire,” promote the organizers.
